Dear Dunfee School Families,

The Dunfee School has a host of activities on the horizon as we enter the month of May.  The PTA will be facilitating a Mother’s Day Plant Shop (no cost to students) on May 8th and the Fifth Grade Committee is busy planning the end of year celebration for our fifth grade students.  Mrs. Oravets, Physical Education teacher, is preparing for our Field Day, scheduled for May 22nd.   As you can see from the list of upcoming events below, students and staff have much to look forward to before the end of the school year!

As a reminder, the PARCC End of Year testing window for grades 3, 4, and 5 is April 27th to May 8th for students in grades 3, 4, and 5.   A schedule will be sent home with your child’s teacher listing the three days he/she will be testing.  In addition, all fourth grade students will be taking NJ ASK Science on May 27th.  Snacks, courtesy of the PTA, will be provided for students during testing.

For the safety of our children, if your son or daughter plans on wearing open-toed shoes to school, please send in a pair of sneakers that he/she can change into for recess.  Only sandals with a back are permitted; no flip flops, please. 

For your convenience, a list of all May happenings can be found below:
